Jack LeMaire took guitar lessons from the legendary Eddy Lang. Jack played on radio broadcasts and recordings with a number of top artists during the 1940s and 50s. He all but gave up the guitar due to suffering from an early onset of arthritis. He then turned towards acting and appeared in countless programs on television. Being a dead ringer for Colonel Sanders, Jack also appeared on KFC commercials as well as for spoof skits on the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno.  Jack was very proud of his musical roots and his connection with Eddy Lang, which was showcased in his 2002 interview, which took place on the floor of the NAMM Show.
